No marriage is perfect — but after being together for years and years, these couples have gotten a thing or two figured out. Whether you're engaged, you've been married for 3 years or you've been together for 13 years, honesty, empathy, and apparently a little texting goes a long way in any relationship. We've pulled the best advice from 45 happy couples, and here are their pieces of advice that are worth remembering. Every couple is different, and what worked for your great-grandparents or your BFF and her husband may be the complete opposite of what helps you and your ificant other don't forget about your love languages!
But that doesn't mean you can't learn from all the lovebirds! Each long-term marriage has its own secret to success, and hearing tips from others may inspire you to find your own. Here's some great advice for a strong, enduring relationship. You have to say it. It's hard to feel resentful towards the other if you start the conversation with those words. We decided to figure out the day-to-day tasks the other absolutely hates to do and then swap them. If your spouse does the chore that makes you a complete pile of misery, you'll appreciate it and him!
This also puts lots of little annoyances in perspective. For instance, when his snoring bugs me, I remind myself that it means he's alive, he's home, and he's with me. We do it because we love each other, not because we expect something in return. When talking doesn't work, send them an , a text, or even a letter. We loved dancing and now we still make time to dance together, even if it's just in the kitchen while we're making dinner. It doesn't hurt we live in wine country!
Two words: separate bathrooms. It keeps a basic level of respect present. It helps keep you bonded and you'll feel better, thanks to the oxytocin rush! During an argument, you eventually reach a point where the best thing is just to walk away and cool off. If you keep pushing, it le to an explosion. Everyone, even our friends, know date night is Friday and that date night cannot be disturbed. This gives us a chance to reset whatever madness happened during the week and there is always plenty! This has become the glue that keeps us together. But it's important to remain an individual as much as you are a sum of the equation.
After all, that's what attracted your spouse to you to begin with! This gives each of us a chance to regroup and think and get some of our own things done. Then when we're together, we can really focus on each other. Works for us! And never say unkind things about him behind his back. Instead, recognize what's really bothering you and try not to take it out on them. But find plenty of opportunities to laugh together. Don't take life too seriously; challenges seem much more manageable when you have a partner to laugh with.
This means sitting down face to face and taking turns listening, understanding, and re-stating until both of you know you understand and are understood. If an issue is too difficult, you can postpone, but the person who asks for a rain check is the one responsible for deciding when the issue will be picked up again.
Nothing builds trust and breaks down the me-versus-you thinking better. We look at each other as a team. I know his heart. I know he supports me. We learned early on in our marriage that there has to be room for all three of us — me, my husband, and my body pillow. That way we both wake up rested and happy.
Value their passions, goals, interests, and needs and decide you will just absolutely support them. This works best if they do the same for you, too. If you love them and you helped make them, then you help take care of them. It's your job, too. Tell yourself that. Then use that feeling to cultivate appreciation, respect, and emotional autonomy while weeding out disdain and contempt.
It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and you will have an amazing marriage. This means we love to do things together and talk to each other. We tell things to each other we'd never tell anyone else. We trust each other with everything and have a sense of humor. We have common likes and are open to trying new things. It really comes down to knowing that no matter what, he has my back and I have his.
